CeBIT 2012: DataCore Software Showcases the Storage Hypervisor and New Capabilities

HANOVER, Germany – 6 March 2012 – CeBIT 2012: DataCore Software, one of the industry’s premier providers of storage virtualisation software, is demonstrating the latest innovations of its storage hypervisor SANsymphony-V at CeBIT’s “Virtualization & Storage Forum” (Hall 2, Stand A40). DataCore will present solutions for the integrated management of virtual infrastructures. Free tickets are available at http://www.vs-forum.com/cebit_ticket.html

The results of a recent survey conducted by IT industry analyst firm, IDC, at the end of 2011 showed that 55.8 percent of the German companies (European 35.8 per cent) are expecting positive effects from the overall economic situation. Storage and virtualisation are the top investment categories. At the same time, general challenges such as Private Cloud, “Big Data,” storage cloud services and storage efficiency boost the market outlook for storage virtualisation. In this positive market environment, the DataCore team led by Christian Hagen (VP EMEA) and Stefan von Dreusche (Director Central Europe) are presenting new developments of the SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor.

At CeBIT, DataCore will showcase a rapid configuration wizard which simplifies the installation and configuration of SANsymphony-V storage servers, especially for system builders, and system integration firms. In particular, DataCore solution partners and their SME (Small and Medium Enterprise) customers will benefit from a fast and seamless implementation of the DataCore solution into existing infrastructures.

At the event, DataCore will also present further product developments from collaborations with other leading virtualisation vendors. For example, with the Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer from Hitachi Data Systems the use of storage resources in a virtual infrastructure can be more effectively monitored and analysed via a single management console. Moreover, availability and performance bottlenecks can be diagnosed more quickly and effectively eliminated. In addition, a powerful new storage management plug-in for VMware vSphere and a Monitoring pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager will be showcased to ensure a higher level and more seamless integration.

“Recent customer wins, such as Kaspersky Lab, a high availability solution which is deploying ten petabytes storage, show that large scale storage virtualisation empowered by storage hypervisor software is becoming a standard for large enterprises,” says Stefan von Dreusche, Director Central Europe at DataCore. “With thousands of customer success stories, the time is right for this proven technology to gain momentum with the more mainstream partner and customer base. Together with our partner Arrow ECS and other market leaders, we will present the recent results of our development at CeBIT 2012 in the virtualisation forum.”

DataCore’s SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor centralises manages and optimises the use of heterogeneous storage devices, regardless of price, performance, model or hardware and integrates flash memory, SSDs, hard drives and cloud storage. The auto-tiering functionality automates the progression and demotion of data across different storage devices – based on performance and cost criteria. Also, by integrating a cloud array gateway, DataCore expands auto-tiering to the cloud level, so non-critical backup and archiving data can be outsourced.
